Every work of art tells a story. As a piece begins to form, it begins to speak. Each piece takes on a life of its own. Every time art is viewed, it reveals something new.

Now might be a good time to become a Member. A yearly Individual Membership costs only $30, a Family Membership only $50, and a Youth Membership is $18.
Gallery hours: Tues.-Fri. 11-3 / Sat. 10-4.
Opening Receptions are for WCIAC Members and guests invited by the Members or the artists. They will be held on the first Tuesday of the exhibit from 5-7 (unless otherwise posted).
All 2-D art and photos must be framed and ready to hang. The WCIAC Gallery uses/provides ‘S’ hooks for hanging.
